Welcome to Elm Class.
In Elm class we enjoy being active, being happy and ready to learn. During their time in Elm Class we continue to develop our English and maths skills and understanding. Our themes over the year include finding out about our world around us, the seasonal changes, the history of toys and much more. We will also be learning about ourselves, including looking at our emotions and the emotions of others. Throughout the year we continuously work on developing a positive growth mindset in order to keep us motivated and excited about learning.
PE: Currently due to the Covid restrictions we request that the children come in plain black or grey jogging bottoms, plain black or grey leggings or black shorts and their trainers on our PE days which are Monday and Friday.
Snack Time: At break time all children are given the choice of a piece of fruit through the Free Fruit Scheme or they can purchase toast or bagels is also available at morning break payable via SCOPay. Children are also able to have a small bottle of milk each morning which is paid for via Cool Milk.
Homework: As part of our Read 4 the Stars initiative, we ask that the children read at least 4 times per week. If they do this successfully, they will receive a reading star and there are lots of incentives to reward those who read regularly at home. Please sign your child’s reading diary when they have read to enable us to reward your child for reading at home. Spellings are sent home on a Friday for practising and a spelling test will be done the following Friday. Homework is set each Friday and needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. At the moment most of our homework will be set online via Purple Mash, Numbots and the option to read using our Oxford Owl account. We currently expect the children to use Numbots for 10 minutes a day at least 3 times per week to build up their speed and mental maths knowledge.
We hope that your child enjoys being part of Elm Class and succeeds and develops a real love and excitement for learning.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need to via Class Dojo.
